  4. “What are they thinking?!” Have you ever said this out loud while watching a big game? You’ve thought so many times before that you could do a better job managing this football team, so we’re going to let you live that dream out. Our football simulation will let you put on your GM hat and take the reins. Here’s how you can hone your skills as a general manager with our Draft Day Sports: Pro Football 2021. Build a Franchise on Your Terms, Your Way You know that this is about so much more than a lousy play. Big change needs to happen at the core of this team. Use Wolverine Studios to build a franchise that will dominate your rivals for seasons and years to come. This isn’t just a football game simulation; it’s a career-based simulation. And every season is going to bring its own unique and challenging question marks. Plus, with updates made to our 2021 version, you have new playbook options to choose from so that you can continue outsmarting your opponents. Every year, the game gets tougher, the players get better, and the strategy becomes more complex. Are you going to be able to keep up with that? We’ve got your back. You’ll need to keep recruiting the best players, coaching them to work as a unit, and managing your staff so that it can run like a well-oiled machine. Simply having the best people isn’t going to be enough. Every person will play a pivotal role in your franchise, and it’s your job to make sure players and members of the administration are pulling their weight. Because this simulation is career-based, Wolverine Studios makes it easy to track and monitor your progress over time. Keep track of everything in the historical archives and watch your franchise climb the rungs season after season. We’re a sucker for spreadsheets, and we know how important they are in recording your numbers. We hope you’re ready to geek out on the analytics, because we’ve got a lot of numbers waiting for you inside our sports simulations. We know that franchise mode has been a bit of a sore spot in the industry of sports simulation, but Wolverine Studios is here to raise the bar. We don’t just have franchise mode. We are franchise mode. Customize Your Franchise for a Fully-Immersive, Lifelike Experience You’re probably used to being able to customize more superficial elements like players’ appearances; and that’s always fun. But we’re taking it a few steps further. We want you to be able to customize everything from a deeper and more complex strategy level. So, we’ve made it easy for you to tailor your league size, players, teams, and logos to your liking. Manage your players’ social types, create characters using multiple player traits, and craft their own unique storylines, to experience a real-life quality. Players come with those own histories, strengths, weaknesses, and personality quirks. You’re not dealing with flat, one-dimensional characters. You’re working with complex, layered, human-like creations. You can even import rookies from DDS: College Football 2021 to Pro Football 2021, or directly link your league, for a completely immersive game universe (and without ever having to leave the game that you’re currently playing in). Sophisticated AI and Unparalleled Technology Particularly when it comes to franchise mode, football sports simulations games have fallen short. It’s left the community disappointed and unsatisfied, still looking for that flawless franchise experience. We don’t want you to feel like you’re merely pushing buttons and watching our AI do all the work. As the general manager, you need to be able to take a far more active role. Wolverine Studios has built its AI to be incredibly savvy and constantly improving. In real life, you’d experience all sorts of curveballs as GM; so, we want your football sim experience to be the same. This isn’t going to be predictable or easy to beat. You’re not going to pull a fast one on the AI or find a way to cheat it or cut corners. It’s going to come down to precise strategy, flawless execution, and mastering the data you collect throughout the season. Why Wolverine Sports? We take our work seriously, and it shows. In fact, in early 2021, we ranked third place on Operation Sports’ Best Management Sim in 2020, for both Draft Day Sports: College Football 2020 and College Basketball 2020. Wolverine Sports was recognized by the industry leader and biggest news outlet, and we couldn’t be more proud. Plus, we never settle for mediocre. We’re not trying to be as good as our competitors; we’re aiming to surpass them. This is why every year, we make updates to our sports simulations. Here are a few updates that you can expect from DDS: Pro Football 2021. New performance grades that let you quickly see how players are performing and at what point in the season they’re earning improvement bonuses in their ratings.A more streamlined and user-friendly interface.More editing options for details on your coaches, Hall of Fame configurations, and playoffs.New data export capabilities so that you can work with your numbers however you want to.And if you want to try your hand at coaching, here are some of the changes we’ve made to DDS: College Football 2021. A redesigned recruiting interface where you can take on more actions and see them organized more effectively.A smoother user interface that’s easier to navigate.An improved game engine with new play design options that allow for motion and play action plays; revamped depth options for designation of third down backs; and a total revamp of the penalty system.AI improvements for penalties and 4th down logic.We’re excited for you to see what we have to offer.

  8. When it comes to picking a basketball sports simulation game, you certainly have options to choose from. But while a lot of sports sims talk the talk, they don’t really walk the walk. If you’re looking for a realistic college basketball simulation game that will let you hone your skills as coach or manager, here are some of the qualities that you should keep an eye out for. Let’s set you up for success. The Most Important Things You Need in a Realistic College Basketball Simulation Game An Intelligent AI You have little to nothing to learn from a game that makes it easy to cut corners on the way to victory. If you were to step out on the court in real life, you’d have a major challenge ahead of you. So, your college sports basketball simulation game should be no different. This is one of the biggest problems we see with sports simulations games. The experience makes it clear that you’re playing a game. Instead of feeling lifelike and realistic, it feels flat and artificial. Reporting preview from different conferences in Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2021.Your sports simulation game needs to operate with an AI that’s as smart as you, if not smarter. This is the only way you’ll be pushed beyond your boundaries, forced to expand your horizons, and ultimately improve your game. Your sports sim should give you a real run for your money. If it doesn’t challenge you, then it won’t change you. Customization How much flexibility does your college basketball simulation game give you to personalize your experience? This is a telling sign of just how realistic it is. We’re not just talking about being able to pick whether a player has blond hair or brown hair (although that’s always a nice touch). What types of colleges are you going after — bigger or smaller? Where in your game are you starting your career — as a total newbie or a seasoned professional? Who do you want on your management staff? What are your coaching philosophies? How will you set your practice plan to achieve those? Who are you recruiting and training, and where in the country are they from? How can you evolve and adapt from season to season? Being able to customize your experience, down to logos and colors, is going to make your sports sim feel far more lifelike. Besides, we know that as coach or manager, you’re not going to be like any other professional. You need all the room in the world to be creative and innovative, to think outside the box. Data and Analytics Tracking and measuring your progress is the only way to know if your efforts are paying off. Are your team members working well together? Which lineups are most effective when used? Is your management staff pulling their weight? Scouting Report from Wolverine Studios Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2021The only way you can determine these answers is to follow the data. What do the insights tell you? This is why it’s crucial that your college basketball simulation game offers you sophisticated and robust analytics to work off of. Maintaining in-depth spreadsheets and monitoring your progress game after game, season after season is going to be non-negotiable if you want to lead your franchise to victory. Authenticity This is 2021, and the bar is high for simulation games. It’s about aesthetics, yes. But it’s also about the way your characters speak, move, play, behave. If your characters and environment look like they came straight out of a 90s Nintendo game, you’re dealing with the wrong basketball sim. This is one of the biggest indicators of how sophisticated a sports simulation is. The Wolverine Studios Difference At Wolverine Studios, we design our sports simulation games with you in mind. And excitingly, we brought several new updates to DDS: College Basketball 2021. Here’s what you can expect. We’ve added enhancements like the NET Quadrant system. This will determine who makes the postseason tournaments, bringing the game feel even more true to life.Our latest recruiting upgrades allow you to recruit directly from the revamped player card, and see more information on the interest level of your school.New recruiting filters make it even easier to target your favorite recruits.Recruit Card from Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2021There is a whole host of new page additions, including a redesigned dashboard screen, new schedule screens, improved ways of selecting simulation times, game-by-game updates while simulating, and changes to the strategy screen to display team proficiencies.

  9. Jim Gindin has announced that he has sold his code to a start-up company. Algorithms based on FOF concepts will be used to power some of the features in a new sports gaming venture. Founded in 1997, Solecismic Software is a small indie company that made PC-based American football management games such as Front Office Football versions 1 to 8 and FOF: The College Years. Jim Gindin would reach national attention with FOF2 when Electronic Arts signed the title. EA provided visual design, a development team, came up with a new play-calling interface, and moving franchises. Having a AAA gaming company to publish your titles at the rise of Madden, NHL, FIFA in the 90’s on early consoles, was truly a remarkable height for the sports management genre. Most recently Solecismic Software tried to link up with OOTP Developments to use their visual design expertise. Looking to give the FOF experience the modern UI upgrades and bring the game mainstream. If you have been following here on GM Games, you will know that is long over. OOTP Developments has even sold itself to a large South Korean publisher. Though now times have changed. Micro-transactions through internet connectivity have created new aggressive monetization ideas. The gaming format we are familiar with on GM Games has a tough road, though SEGA and Sports Interactive have proven that there is a world out there ready to love a game of their sport done in an immersive way. Maybe one day these companies will apply design thinking and plot the customer experience people want to build a human-centred design product from scratch. Further to the story, Jim has wrote a blog article about how this relates to his life, how it’s something new, how it took time to negotiate. http://www.solecismic.com/announcement_2021.php From our point of view, what could possibly come out of this to benefit our genre? The answer is likely nothing. FOF8 will be getting a new roster and the code will be chopped up into parts to support something that isn’t the FOF model. At some point everyone steps away, ends the development backlog of their projects and games wrap-up for many reasons. FOF and what it achieved will continue to be a tremendous historic achievement and FOF8 will be placed into the GM Games Hall of Fame section for digital eternity. Come join the discussion about the sell-off on reddit… The post FOF9 Scrapped.

  10. If you never feel more at home than when you’re on the court and want nothing more than to lead your team to victory, then a college basketball simulation game will let you hone your skills. How exactly can you leverage a sports simulation game like Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2021 to its fullest potential so that you can sharpen your strategy and improve your coaching acumen? Let’s dig in with some tips from the pros (meaning… us), and how you can apply them to DDS: CB2021. Keep scrolling for more! Become a Better Coach With College Basketball Sports Simulation Games Customize Everything Down to the Smallest Details The last thing you want from a college basketball simulation game is for it to feel like a game. You need this to feel like real life. This means that the ability to customize and personalize your experience is key. With Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2021, you take control — not the game. Select your favorite school of the size of your choosing, devise your summer scouting plans, recruit the players who you think are the best fit from all over the country, and come up with the plays and strategies you feel will lead your team to tournament glory. It doesn’t end there, though. Being a coach is about more than the players; you’re also going to have a staff to build and manage. Our coaching lineage feature even lets you look in on all of your assistants to see if they’ve been successful on their own after learning from you. Did we mention that this is a long-term play? (We bet you didn’t think that so many people would be relying on you!) The customization potential extends to your players, logos, and you can even export rookies. Download community-created mod files to transform your game into a world of your own, for a fully immersive, interactive experience. This is about so much more than pushing buttons and playing against a mediocre AI (more on that in a minute). You’re going to feel like you’re on the court, calling the shots and charging toward the big win. How you play is entirely up to you. Would you prefer to start at a small school, make a name for yourself, and gradually work your way up the ladder? Or do you want to dive right into your dream job and attack with full force? The choice is yours. Build Your Dynasty Well Into the Future Like we said, this is a long-term play. This isn’t about just one game, one team, one season. It’s about the success of the entire franchise. You’re no fair-weather coach — you’re in this for the long haul. In this case, what you really need is a career-based simulation, where every season brings new challenges from the board, in addition to recruiting new players along the way. It’s a long road ahead, and you probably already know that no two games, players, or seasons are going to look alike. The strategy will need to evolve, as will you. After all, the greatest coaches on earth find ways to outdo themselves season after season. Being able to track your progress over time will be crucial. Otherwise, how will you know what’s working, what isn’t, and where and how you can improve? With Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2021, you can record your achievements over time in the historical archives so that you can relive the excitement and also review your past approaches. Store and export everything you need in spreadsheets and databases so that it’s easily accessible and perfectly organized. There’s a lot of pressure on you to call the right plays, expertly manage your staff, and demolish your opponents before the timer runs out. And you’re going to have to do it for years to come. The pressure is on. An AI That Can’t be Hacked, Cheated, or Sidestepped When you’re using a college basketball simulation game to become a better coach, nothing is worse than a simulation that you can easily cheat. Sure, winning is nice — but you also know that in reality, winning usually isn’t that easy. As a real-life coach, there is no hacking the system; so, why should your sports sim be that way? Wolverine Sports uses an intelligent AI that allows you to make informed decisions and then watch the action unfold. There are no magic tricks or shortcuts — only strategy and expertise that will culminate on the court. You’re going to have to leverage your expertise and think outside the box because there probably won’t be any easy calls here. What did you do in the past that worked? Take it and find a way to make it better, because your job requires you to be constantly improving. Our goal is to replicate all of the same challenges, hurdles, and obstacles that you’d encounter in real life. This won’t come easy, but nothing worth chasing ever did. That’s just going to make your victories seem so much sweeter. The team at Wolverine Studios has made it our mission to engineer a college basketball sports simulation game unlike anything else you’ve ever seen. It’s not just our smooth graphics and lifelike characters. It’s the brilliant AI, painstaking attention to detail, and the incredibly immersive experience you’ll get.

This year’s version is our biggest and best ever – in addition to our own upgrades we went over a list of more than 250+ community suggestions for the game and included a good number of those as well. You’ll find both some welcomed new features this year as well as many minor tweaks that are sure to delight long time players of our game! Recruiting has received some of the most important upgrades this time around starting with the totally redesigned recruit card above. You now can perform your recruiting actions right from this card itself as well as getting new information about the recruit’s level of interest right on the card as well as a better way to see the ratings you have already scouted on the player. You can also communicate via text message with recruits right from this screen too! One of the biggest new additions to the game is the use of NET and the NET quadrants to determine which teams will make the championship tournament with at-large bids. This replaces the outdated RPI system and allows you direct insight into seeing which of your wins (and losses) are playing key roles in determining your tournament fate. The additions don’t stop there though – we’ve got upgrades in every facet of the game such as the changed 2D screen to improve game play, the redesigned strategy screen which will let you see all of your player proficiencies at once so you know which sets to focus on, new recruiting filters to help narrow your lists even more, updated sub matrix features, sim engine improvements to make players stand out more at smaller schools, additional options to skip portions of the summer periods and so much more including the redesigned dashboard screen above which lets you get more information on your players and get to recognize them better which is important in a college game with so much player turnover. That’s just some of the improvements in this year’s version. To see them all you’re going to have to get on the road to the tournament yourself! Will you become one of college basketball’s all-time great coaches? It’s time to tip-off another exciting year of college basketball and time for you to #BuildYourDynasty!
